New solid waste facility opening is delayed

The county’s new solid waste facility has now been delayed for the second time.

The $3.2 million trash and recycling center being built on Windhurst Way, near Martinrea Heavy Stamping, was originally scheduled to be opened in July, then November and now has been pused back to 2015.

At a special called meeting Thursday afternoon, Project Manager Tim Ball told the 109 Board, which oversees solid waste in the county, that new equipment was needed, and it won’t be available for up to 9 weeks.
